    They have an interesting mixture of configurations and the prices are very reasonable for what you are getting. I'm assuming that the 1264-T is actually 4 separate servers that are each dual-socket as opposed to having a shared image for all 64 cores? Reply

    yea...they're four separate systems, although I think that there might be a view that can kind of "distribute" it's own installation over PXE, but are treated as slave installations, I think. Reply

    Kristian, you might want to check Dell's website. Any of the Rx20 servers are E5. Reply

    Also, HP has G8's on their website as well. Reply

    Thanks, I've added some comparison with Dell. It's possible that I was only looking at workstations as they are not SNB-EP based yet. Reply

    That's nice and all, but Dell just also released their R620 (1U, dual Xeon E5) and R720 (2U, dual Xeon E5) systems as well. Those look pretty interesting to me. Reply

    Dude, I'm lickin' my chops cause our ESXi 2950's are up for replacement in Q3! I saw the E5 release drop here first and IMMEIDIATELY when to Dell's page, followed by 1.5 hours of drooling... Reply
